thanks a million for all of these Tribe records. They are all very good. now i dont know if you handle requests, but do you happen have ANY records from the Black Jazz label. The only ones i was able to pick up were Doug Carn's Adam's Apple and the Best of compilation and both are on fire from so much play. Any help would be greatly appreciated. sincerely, shitpants.

Es una pena! pero creo q' es un error nada mas:
The download limit has been reached for this file
y lo volverías a subir "please" por q' es un maravilloso disco q' estabamos esperando!!
desde México!

Here's a nice Japanese compilation of Black Jazz stuff, from the great "My Favorite Sounds" blog:


Would love to see Pharoahs Dance tap into the Mainstream Records well if possible ...

been using this site for a while and wanted to say thanks, especially since the copy of vibes i was watching on ebay ended up selling for over £250! This seems the only way i can afford them
